The Corona Rail Maintenance Shop and Car Wash, the first MTA New York City Transit facility to achieve LEED certification, uses practical approaches to sustainability, including natural lighting and ventilation, rainwater collection for train washing and a 100kW solar panel array.

Not only did the facility win an “Innovation in Design” award from the US Green Building Council, but it has shown a documented productivity increase by doubling the Mean Distance Between Failures for the more than 400 subway cars its employees maintain.

This tour will be led by Tom Abdallah, Chief Environmental Engineer, MTA New York City Transit, and will last up to two hours.

**Directions and group travel instructions will be provided to tour registrants.
